IN A PAINFUL SITUATION.
D uished Traveler Victim of
Mistake of Bell Boy.
The train on which the distin
guished citizen was traveling for the
purpose of fulfilling a lecture en
gagement was late and he arrived at
his destination only an hour or two
before the time appointed for the
He went straight to a hotel and
was shown to his room.
He was tired and dusty.
"Boy," he said. "bring we a whisk."
The boy went to execute the mis
sion, and a few moments later a corn
mi-Etee from the local society under
whose auspices he was to appear call
ed upon him in his room.
He was conferring with the com
mittee when the boy returned, bear
ing a tray containing a glass of water
and a smaller glass with red liquid
"What's that?" he demanded.
"It's 'Ehe whiskey you ordered, sir."
"I didn't order any whiskey," he
gasped. "I ordered a whisk broom!"
But -every member of the committee
representing the Turkeville Total
Abstinence Society will believe to his
dying day that the distinguished lec
'urer got exactly what he had order
ed on that occasion.
A CHANCE FOR GENIUS.
Invent Safe Place for Women's
Money and Make Mil
"Ivent some place to carry mon
ey," said a girl to her friend in the
Hotel Walton the other day, "and
we'll make a fortune. There should
be genuis enough in this town for
such an emergency, and the firsc to
put the idea to practical use will be
blessed as well as profited. I am
weary of reading this impracticable
suggestions about pocketed stock
ings and 'pretty lit7de fawnskin rolls
that can be tucked into the back hair
Where did you ever see one, I'd like
to know? Tbe pocket in the stock
ing is a delusion and a snare. You
can't get at your money in a crowd,
and if you could you wouldn't. To
make a depository of your back hair
is absurd for many reasons which
the woman with a scant growth will
apreciate. You can't carry your
change in a bag under your corsage
and you don't dare go on the street
with it in a handbag, because you are
so conscious it is there you invite a
grab by your very nervousness.
Dress pockets with the tight-fitting
gnwns of today are out of the ques
tion. Can't you get Eidson or some
body equally clever to suggest a
scheme? Then we could put it for
b. ward as our own and make millions."
APE-LIKE GIANTS OF AFRICA.
Strange Race Met on Southern
Shore of Great Lake.
Mr. Edward Grogan-who travers
ed Africa along its whole length,
from the Cape to Cario-met with a
strange race on the southern shores
of Albert Edward Nyanza. These
fearsome, ape-like creatures, hiding
behind banana palms, are tall men,
with long arms and pendant paunch
Such is the stamp of the brute on
them that they may be placed lower
in the scale than any other African
native hith^'erto seen. Their face,
body and limbs are covered with
wiry hair, while the hang of the long,
powerful arms, the slight stoop of
the trunk, and the hunted, vacant ex
pression of the face make them ap
pear more like apes than human be
Northwards near Lado, the same
party came across the Dinkas, a race
of giants, standing six feet six inches
to seven feet in height, and magnini

ing Toroland which swarmed with
elephants of gigantic size. the natives
were simply stark-naked savages of
inexp)ressible degradation of charac
Of course it sounds a lot better to
resign a position than to get fired
from a job, but a man who has had
some experience claims that the ef
fect on one's capacity for paying
board bills is about the same.
The Folly of Betting.
Lord Brampton. better known as
Sir Henry Hawkins. the great Eng
lish criminal lawyer. judge and
sportsman. has just published his
reminiscences. Speaking of what
cured him of betting he relates that
Harry Hill. one of the "characters"
of Tattersails. gavc him this piece of
a(lvice as a youth:
"-Ar. Hawkins. I see you come
here pretty regularly on Supnday af
ternoons. but I advise vou not to cal
culate among us. for if you do we
shall beat you. We know our bu;i

Who Wrote Mother Goose?
Many people are under the impres
Sion that "Mother Goose's" stories
and nursery rhymes were written by
sonie old housewife. This is a mis
take. The real author was a scholar
of learning and renown, Charles Per
rault, one of the first members of the
French academy. He died in 1703,
and though it is over two hundred
years ago, his tales still live. May
the faries ever protect his name.
